I got my eye on this exact dress and fell in love with it, it was also reduced from £39.50 to £10 so it was a sign!
I think I am going to wear it to the event on Saturday night with my tan accessories (that are all tone matched, despite the pictures up above ^ ) . I think the addition of the clutch bag over a shoulder bag, and some glam jewellery, make up and hair I can turn this maxi in to a smart look. Also, with a big beach bag, black flip flops and some sunnies, it's a perfect beach / pool dress
I don't want to go OTT smart for the event but I know I can style the dress up. I might swap the flats for some tan heels to match the waist cinch belt and clutch
Either way, I LOVE the dress... and I love it more for £10!
Dress was £10
Tan Clutch was £6
Tan waist cinch belt was £4
Tan Sandals were £5
Gotta love those end of summer sales!

Dr Bronner’s takes its organic credentials very seriously unlike many “natural” body care companies who masquerade their synthetically derived ingredients by using floral water as the main natural ingredient, while the functional ingredients are petrochemical derived and thus non-sustainable. The 100% Pure Castile Soap recipe used in Dr. Bronner’s soap is a simple, ecological, vegetable based formulation, named after the Castile region of Spain where olive oil soaps where invented long ago. The high foaming lather of the soap is from its high coconut oil content, which makes a more luxurious and rich lather compared to any detergent formulation commonly found even in “natural stores.” Dr. Bronner’s superfat their soaps with organic hemp and jojoba oils for a milder, smoother lather and use natural plant-derived vitamin E and citric acid to protect freshness. Apart from flavouring organic essential oils such peppermint, the base soap ingredients are Water, Saponified Organic Coconut*, Organic Palm* and Organic Olive* Oils (w/Retained Glycerin), Organic Hemp Oil, Organic Jojoba Oil, Essential Oils**, Citric Acid, Vitamin E.

Immediate PR’s Blog of the Week – #6Posted on August 9, 2011 by admin
Holiday fever has hit the Immediate PR offices this month with all of
us heading abroad to enjoy the sun and a few pina coladas, and this week’s
Blog of the Week got our attention with her fabulous post on holiday
beauty on Lady From a Tramp.
Her practical approach to looking great on the beach was perfect, as we all know a
suitcase crammed with endless products isn’t what we all need! The way Lady From a Tramp helps you to simplify your beauty routine for a portable and easy fix is refreshing and realistic, and showing what she would be taking away is a great indicator for beauty lovers in need of
some advice and guidance before panic buying.
Congratulations Lady From a Tramp, you’re our Blog of the Week (and we hope you have a

Sleek MakeUP’s NUDE COLLECTION resonates from the clean, fresh-faced beauty that reigns over the fashion industry, and no longer is this colour story all about beige. Sleek MakeUP’s new collection is a celebration of ethereal beauty, ranging from earthy browns, variations of tan, and pearly oysters. The dominant makeup trend emerging from the A/W ’11 shows is one of far fewer bold brights and many more neutral, taupe dustings of colour; now the focus is on perfect skin, natural shades of makeup, and a real sense of purity.
AU NATUREL I-DIVINE (RRP: £6.49) gives you soft, subtle eyes with a palette of fawns and champagne, or a smoky, sultry look with rich dark browns, highly pigmented to suit all skin tones.
SUEDE BLUSH (RRP: £4.29) and create contours and highlights with a shroud of natural colour.

So…. Sleek launched their Pout Paints yesterday.
I have been ringing round branches of Superdrug since 9am yesterday morning to try and locate some of the seemingly mythical products and the branch assistants I have spoke to have either heard nothing about the Pout Paints, don't know when it's coming or they only have blue. Surely for a product to launch it should have been there on concessions bang on for start of trade on launch day? I don't know if this is a Superdrug issue or Sleek, but it's something I have never experienced with Boots yet, they always have full stock on launch day. - Especially when you consider some branches had them BEFORE launch day.
I tried (7 times to date) to process an order on the Sleek website to no avail as the Sage Pay facility does not acknowledge the 3 for 2 offer making the final total £15 more than it should be.
I have flagged this up via Twitter, Facebook and Email. I appreciate they have technical issues, lordy, I'm an IT techy myself but surely they could have put a note out on the news section of their website, or facebook or Twitter?
I truly hate to say it but the Sleek customer service leaves A LOT to be desired at present. Seriously, would it have taken you that much effort to put a note out somewhere to warn people of the issue to stop people still trying to process orders, or being accidentally over charged. £15 is a pretty big over-charge for what is a budget drugstore brand y'know.
C'mon Sleek, you should have made an announcement somewhere before now.
A very disappointed Sleek fan.

I had done a straight blow dry last night with a paddle brush and went to bed in my hot sticky humid bedroom and woke up with loose curls on the ends of my hair.
I thought I would embrace the curly twurl and leave my hair down today. I enhanced the curly with a spritz of V05 SurfStyle salt spray
I vaguely followed the hair routine that I blogged about HERE but obviously I didn't curl or use the Big Hair dryer, but the products are the same as usual.
It's just a shame the flash turned my pale blonde hair a brassy yellow shade as it hit the shine at the back! Grrrr

I am currently using the Watermelon & Pink Grapefruit lotion which smells so light and summery it's just lovely. It makes me want to eat my fingers. I have to avoid using it just before lunch time.. Nom nom nom. It just evokes mental images of summery beaches with the man selling fresh watermelon and big delicious fruit salad platters.
